My System Specs


It looks like you did everything correctly. If there was any unallocated (unpartitioned) space on the drive you would see it in grey and it would say unallocated.

Even though the drive is labelled as 250GB you will never see that total in Windows, blame Microsoft! ;)

If you check in BIOS you'll see the full capacity.

Supposedly the reason is that HDD manufacturers use 10^3 (1,000) to define 1 kilobyte - Windows use 2^10 (1,024), hence the "missing" GBs!
